so did my great grand parents bob, horse drawn ,2 big Belgian grays, don't walk behind it ,walk well to the side the rains reached to ,
It was told that the shovel held 220 yards-----or 2 greyhound busses in the bucket.
I went out and saw a dragline working at digging overburden at the Black Thunder Mine in Wright Wy in 1999. That was pretty big at 220 cubic yards
Yep, that was not a typo.
I also watched a 300 ton dump truck come around a curve and spill 20 tons of coal and asked the guy if they scraped it up at the end of the day as it would heat my house for a decade. He said he never thought about it before but spilled coal was just waste.
